HRSA conducts reviews in three ways — two of which allow you to serve without leaving your office or home.

  • In person: two- to four-day meetings, usually in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Reviewers discuss applications they have independently reviewed and scored;
  • By teleconference: one- to three-day phone calls. Reviewers discuss applications they have independently reviewed and scored;
  • Field reviews: Reviewers independently review and score applications. No group discussion is held.
